Teen kills girlfriend, himself

A LOVELORN teeager shot his girlfriend dead in a Nelson Mandela Bay street yesterday before fleeing and turning the gun on himself.

Booysen Park High School pupil Izeane Meintjies, 15, died instantly when she was shot in the chest after what eyewitnesses described as a lovers’ quarrel.

She had been arguing with Errol Plaatjies, 19.

A witness, who did not want to be named because she feared reprisals from druglords in the area, lives about 30m from the shooting scene in Petersen Street. She claimed Plaatjies had peddled drugs to schoolchildren.
